I sought help on your website for a problem I have but did not find a really good tip on the FAQ so I’m sending in my own question – hope that’s fine.
I do not own a cat myself and have always had a neutral attitude towards cats and other pets. I live in an old residential area where many of the neighbors have cats.
Since approximately a year back, two or three cats regularly visit my carport, pretty much every night or early in the morning.
The cats are climbing on my car and it has happened that they have marked the car roof.
I need to set up a bird net around the car every night.
This prevents the cats from jumping on the car, but I see every morning that the cats have walked around the car.
It all makes me annoyed and sometimes even furious.
I have raised the matter with the neighbors but everyone says that THEIR little cat would never do that. Do you have any tips?
You can go to a zoo store and buy products that you sprinkle or spray your garden with. There are a lot of different ones but you can get advice in the store.
Place the agent around the entire surface at the entrance to the carport and around the car, if you spray the agent, spray on the posts also a good distance up.
You need to repeat the treatment several times especially if it has rained because most agents are water soluble.
Talk to cat owners about this again and ask them to help you with the cost (show them a receipt).
Other products that cats do not like the smell of are lemon, you can try buying the concentrated juice that is available at the grocery store, usually available as a plastic lemon.
